The Amazon – Life, wonderful burgeoning life… seemingly infinite shapes, colors, sounds, they move in synchrony, melt together and breathe their presence around you. Like a super-organism, the largest rainforest in the world, the Amazon, engulfs you and wraps its spectacular and intricate webs of life around you. Full of romance and mystery, you will become entwined in the rhythm of the forest like the vines that weave themselves amongst the towering trees above and cover the ground below.
We will be immersed for 4 days in the heart of this ecological treasure trove. We will spend 3 nights in the lodge exploring the forest by day and by night, because the Amazon never sleeps. We will travel on foot and by motorized canoe to delve deeper into this natural wonderland. We’ll have the opportunity to swim in the big rivers and in smaller tributaries under crystalline waterfalls. We can fish for piranhas and hunt for Caiman (small alligators) at night. We will have the opportunity to meet and interact with the surrounding indigenous cultures and learn how they interact and use the forest. This trip can be arranged with an additional forest survival course or as a 7 day itinerary.
